Anchor Men and Women

Encouraging and Strengthening women.

At Anchor Women we are all about strengthening women to be all that God has called us to be.

Our desire is for women to be encouraged and strengthened. We find this in our relationship with and our faith in Christ.

We want every woman in our community to feel invited and welcome at the events we run throughout the year and every Sunday when our church family gathers.

Our goal is for women to be cared for, connected to and growing in Christ.

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

We want men to connect, encourage and build relationships that reflect Christ in our community. We want to

  • connect across generations
  • encourage men to be courageous, strong and to grow in their faith
  • build strong relationships that foster accountability
  • reflect Christ in our works, words and conduct, and to;
  • love each other as Christ loves us.

One thing that happens regularly is the Mens Breakfast.  On the first Saturday of the month some of the men from three Whitby churches have breakfast together.  During the morning topics relevant to men are presented, we help on housebuilds with Habitat for Humanity and sometimes get out to give someone in need a hand.

We have had presentations on Transmission Gully, the RSA, Open Doors, some of our local GPs, local city councillors, and Peter Jackson’s pilot!
